Hi, I am using MDB 4.3 PRO and trying to use the double fixed navs. The issue is that i'm getting errors in console: jQuery.Deferred exception: $(...).sideNav is not a function TypeError: $(...).sideNav is not a function my scripts loading order:
<script src=""></script>
<script src=""
<script src=""
<script src="{{ mix('js/app.js') }}"></script>
where app.js calls the $('.button-collapse').sideNav(); Any help would be grateful.

It looks like you're a free user and have no access to pro component.

Keep coding,  Mikołaj from MDB

Hi guys, Im trying to build a sidenav navigation, just like in this example it gives an error described above Please advice

dmakhkamov pro commented 5 years ago

Nevermind, replaced the js files from PRO folder. it started working. apparently i was working with the Free version JS files before

Sidenav is a pro component, so it needs premium javascript code.

Hi, Laravel in bootstrap.js load jquery and bootstrap-sass and that's why you get this error, you need to comment this line (11):

window.$ = window.jQuery = require('jquery');

and recompile js and it will work fine

I'm going to re-open this issue because I'm using MeteorJS and I'm getting this error. Since we need parallel loading of javascript assets to make initial access fast, sometimes, the call to the sidenav() function was performed even before loading mdb.js.

Here is my temporary solution:

waitForSideNav() {
  if (typeof$(".button-collapse").sideNav!=='undefined' && $.isFunction($(".button-collapse").sideNav)) {
  } else {
    setTimeout(this.waitForSideNav, 100);

All I have to do is to call waitForSideNav()

This is not an elegant solution but it works!

Hello Stef Kariotidis, You can make different file just for initialization of sidenav (and other MDB components, which you are using). At the moment webpack support is in MDB’s TODO list. Regards

I am posting a potential fix for this. I've moved the call to the plugin in an inline script at the bottom of the page which is an ugly solution. The rest of my JS code goes through a webpack build bundled into an app.js file which in turn is loaded last in the page. For some reason the sidenav plugin does not like it. Problem partialy solved but if anyone has an answer I am all ears. Regards
